Donbas: Russian mercenaries set positions in areas of supposed disengagement of troops

19:14, 19 September 2019

Russian occupants set new firing positions in Donbas - right in the area where the troops and vehicles of the warring sides should be disengaged. The OSCE reports that new trenches were dug in the vicinities of Petrivske. 

The observers also spotted construction vehicles and newly built hideouts. Such actions may be due to the recent talks in Minsk. The negotiation group discussed whether everything was ready for division of forces.

Ukraine expressed readiness to begin the process, while the Russian side stalled it, avoiding to agree on the specific date of the supposed division.
